It sounds like you've maxed out your memory.
I've noticed that if you *accidentally* totally fill your memory, you can't get it back.
This is not a well-reasoned suggestion but:
When I have trouble with firmware settings sometimes the only cure for my ills was to switch between firmware revisions. That is, when I was running one firmware and had some strange memory issues or settings that were no longer changing or not "remembering" being changed, flashing once again with a different firmware version (and in my case immediately flashing back to my desired firmware release) fixed the problem.
I *think* some settings are impossible to change when du -h shows the partitions at 100% or if you accidentally copied too many mb's to your usr/local/etc and now it refuses to show you a correct accounting of the free memory on that partition (so it says 75% free, but you accidentally tried to copy a 1.1 gb movie to the partition- the copy failed, but the drive is now freaked out- it shows 75% free but really it was attempting to accommodate too large a file and has failed to recover from that effort).
Anyway, so I think changing the partition sizes (which, naturally, changing frimware versions does) is what is at the root of this cure. I just used a ready made different firmware, then flashed back to the firmware I wanted- but you could also get the same effect, if I am right, if you simply change the partition size of the /usr/local/etc just a bit:
